What's the story?

It's Thursday so we have a new sketch challenge and My Favorite Challenge over at the My Favorite Things Forum on Splitcoast. Every Thursday we have new challenges in a new thread so we can chat and share our projects. This is my card for this week's Sketch Challenge--#87.

Flopsey (from the What's the Story set) was stamped on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored with Copic markers, and cut out. He's popped up on a Very Vanilla layer which was cut/embossed with a Nestabilities Labels Four with edges sponged with Creamy Caramel ink, which is in turn matted with more DP. The patterned paper is from the paper pad from K & Co. and card stock is Creamy Caramel and Ruby Red. Some lace with ribbon threaded through and some Dew Drops provide some accent. The sentiment is from the same set and done the same was as the focal image.

We'd love for you to join us in these challenges, so come on over and give it a whirl and join in the chat!

I'm so glad you dropped in today!
